On September 15th, Make-A-Wish Vermont celebrated past, present and future wish children at the 10th annual Walk for Wishes in South Burlington, sponsored by Bond Auto Parts. Hundreds of people joined together to help raise awareness and funds to grant the wishes of Vermont children living with life-threatening medical conditions.
The Walk for Wishes is a short 3 mile loop that focuses on the Celebration of Hope after the Walk where wish stories are shared and new friendships are made. Thanks to the dedication and support of all of our volunteers, in-kind donors, sponsors and fundraisers our Walk was able to raise the funds needed to grant 10+ wishes this coming year!
Make-A-Wish Vermont grants wishes to Vermont children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Since their inception in 1989, Make-A-Wish-Vermont has granted the wish of every medically-eligible child, 650+ wishes to date.
